Ever visit a website and it takes too long to load? More than 60% of people abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load. While WordPress is a great platform, it can also be very slow. A slow website will not only cause you to lose visitors, but will also have a trickle down effect. You will lose sales, increase bounce rates, drop in rankings, lose referrals and more. A poor performing website results in a poor user experience, and as Google sees it; sites with poor user experiences deserve less promotion in search results.
